I don't think we have seen the last of Germany as far as being a "contender" is concerned.
Two times in the past the great nation has fought against the world and did a pretty damn good job doing it. Two times they have been defeated and
reduced to a shell of a state only to, in very short time may I add, rebuild their country into one of the best in Europe. History is always repeating
itself. I've been watching Germany for awhile and many of their moves in the EU and to me it appears their goal is economic control of Europe.
Considering they are one of the few good economies in the EU they are in a good spot.
I'm not saying Hitler is going to rise from the dead and war with the world again. But think about how different the world will be in 50 years.
Plenty of time for German citizens to forget their guilt and start wanting more for themselves again. When they get tired of propping up the whole of
Europe perhaps they'll collect on their debts much like people are always saying the Chinese will with the USA. First, economic takeover of Europe,
then when it's in shambles they could move across the continent gobbling up nations and resources. Wouldn't want a foreign nation that isn't likely
to be happy with such acts to be holding your gold would you?
Yeah I sound crazy probably, probably the most "out there" post I've made on ATS. But ask the people of the world shortly following WWI if they
thought Germany would rise up and take on the world once again and they would likely have said no.
I'm incredibly interested in History and have studied a lot about the politics of the various factions of the world wars, while Germany definitely
was doing evil things I can't honestly say that I'm sure the world is better today because they lose. Every single great empire got that way by
doing evil against their fellow men, yet many of us here benefit from this evil. When someone says the world might have been better if Germany won you
call them evil and crazy. Yet look at the pure evil that is leading the great nations today. We won, did we? Really?
Germans don't like being harassed by outside entities, nobody does. If you have the power and the will to stop such actions you'll likely take
I think 50 years from now many of the things that we talk about here at ATS will be revealed. I don't mean Nibiru and chemtrails. I mean the daily,
continuing odd happenings in governments and economies around the world. Just like looking back at the previous world wars it appears like a pretty
obvious and linear progression towards the outcome we're all familiar with. Hindsight is 20/20 as they say and looking back I think that many of the
the things peope here THINK will happen will go in a totally different direction.
Imagine if the US and China both collapse economically, which is entirely possible. They are tied to each other, and they are both building
skyscrapers in a tar pit if you catch my drift. It doesn't have to be a doomsday scenario, just both countries doing so bad they don't have the time
or money to go meddling with other countries. Then you have Europe sapping the life blood of Germany, without the USA to worry about they might get
tired of such things and do what they have tried to do twice before.
Everyone thinks it's China and the USA, or Russia. That there will be some major world war where everyone gets blown up and all hell breaks loose. I
find it far more likely that the USA and China will fall economically so hard they are far less relevant to the world, and someone will be left over
to pick up the pieces- Germany. Who has proven time and again they are not to be underestimated or forgotten about.
Current powers won't burn out, they'll fade away. Grasping at every branch and leaf with their arthritis ridden hands as they fall towards the
Not trying to convince anyone here and not saying this for sure will happen, it's just one idea I've thought about and when you keep this idea in
mind, and watch what's going on the world, it sure seems possible, if not likely, that in 2060+ the kids only idea of the current world superpowers
are stories told to them by their parents and grandparents.
If I had to bet on one nation for LONG term survival and success, my vote goes to Germany. Maybe the 3rd time around they'll succeed in a European
(and possibly North African) Empire. This game that the world powers have been playing for the last little while can't go on forever. And when it
falls I know who I'll put my money on.... it definitely won't be China, the US, or Russia, which are the only countries people right now thing about
as far as things like this are concerned.
I'm interested to see how this plays out.
